Sounds to me like its some software based issue causing the problems. Restoring your computer is likely to resolve the problem, but however your docs, data and installed software may be removed as you would be restoring to factory setting basically, unless you are restoring to a recent backup which would be fine. You could try a system restore from windows, if you can't get into windows when you power up your system, keep on tapping the F8 key after the initial BIOS boot up, and you will be presented with a list of options select safe mode, windows should boot up.. once into windows usually it's goto Start Menu -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore, select this and read through you can restore the system to a previous state, select a date that you had no problems with the PC, then follow the instructions... this way you won't lose personal data like documents and pictures etc... but maybe software that has been installed. If you can't get into safe mode then, let me know.

My HP laptop tries to start up but freezes on the "microsoft Corporation" screen with the green loading bar. I tried to do a System restore, but it wont acknowledge any recent restore points at...


Hi,

Freezing at the "Microsoft Corporation" screen is normally caused by Windows updates. Since System Restore did not work for you, you can also try to disable unimportant services and start-up items. Usually this kind of problem ends up to reinstalling the operating system.

But you are lucky if reinstalling the operating system would fix the issue. Sometimes you'll end up wondering what to do because you'll end up with the same screen after the computer reboots itself from the long process.

With this kind of issue, I suggest you to try to run a hard drive diagnostic tool or try to use a good known harddrive.

Hope this helps.

My laptop came on but my screen is black. I can hear my coputer on but my screen is staying black.


Here are some discrete steps you shall also take besides fixing your Windows 7 registry which is inevitable for safer and stable computing:
* Conduct an antivirus and antimalware scan. Fixing for malwares after a registry scan gives an extra protection to the PC and saves PCs from lots of dangerous infections.
* Start Windows 7 in safe mode and restore your PC/system to the previous date after which you received the Windows 7 updates. It is believed that some updates may be behind these screen issues in Windows 7.
* Adjust your display settings since the wrong settings may also cause the Windows 7 black screen also called the blank screen. You can do this by starting Windows in safe mode.
Follow all the guidelines and start from registry repairing scan for Windows 7 to fix Windows 7 black screen.use registry cleaner reg in out to solve the issue

Laptop is working fine until the screen goes black


The problem of black screen can also happen in other versions of the Windows. However, the symptoms and effects of the problems in all operating systems are almost same. For instance, when a user starts his Windows, everything goes fine. But when he logs into it there awaits a black screen instead of the normal desktop layout. An average computer user finds it very disturbing and has no clue how to fix Windows 7.
However, the best way to find a solution to this problem is to fix the registry errors in your computer which become the cause of all major Windows errors and crashes. The registry in Windows 7 is a very important component of the entire operating system and it stores information about the Windows settings. If these settings are not adjusted properly then there start to appear strange computer problems such as Windows 7 black screen.
